AMD Ryzen 9000 CPUs Listed for Sale: 9950X up to €190 Cheaper than the 7950X?

AMD’s Ryzen 9000 processors are scheduled to launch on the 31st of July. Following the Computex reveal of Zen 5, there has been a flood of Strix and Granite Ridge reports on the web. Here’s our primer on the Ryzen 9000 processors and how they compare to Intel’s upcoming Arrow Lake-S parts. Previously, we’ve covered rumors claiming that these CPUs will be cheaper than their predecessors, but nothing is official yet. Regardless, many retailers have already listed the Ryzen 9000 chips for pre-order:

Slovenian retailer Funtech, for example, seems particularly confident in its listings. All four X-series Granite Ridge parts are up for pre-order at relatively decent prices. The Ryzen 9 9950X is listed for €659 which translates to $706 US. The Ryzen 9 7950X debuted at €849, making the 9950X nearly €200 cheaper.

The Ryzen 9 9900X is listed at €499, making it €170 more affordable than the 7900X (at launch). The Ryzen 7 9700X is listed at €399, €79 less than the 7700X’s launch price. The Ryzen 5 9600X is priced at €309, €50 less than its predecessor.

Pre-order prices are usually higher than the MSRPs, so there’s a good chance the Ryzen 9000 family will debut at $50-150 less than the Ryzen 7000 stack. Since the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, 7900X3D, and 7950X3D have dropped way below their sticker prices, it won’t make much sense for AMD to price the Granite lineup higher or even on par with their launch prices.
